Whole Body Thermography
What is Thermography (European Thermography)?
Thermography is a functional test that tracks your Autonomic Nervous System and blood flow responses. Founded on 30 years of research and designed by German doctors specializing in Integrative Medicine, European Thermography reveals a vast amount of insightful information about your health. It is non invasive, & no radiation is involved. Thermography picks up physiological and functional changes in tissues that occur before any structural changes can be seen.
No physical contact is made with the patient and it can be used to detect inflammation and used as a monitoring tool post treatment. These are distinct advantages over all other diagnostic systems.
Camera Thermography can only show radiant heat pictures with increased heat meaning inflammation. European Thermography detects infection in the tissues, detects warning signs earlier than with any other diagnostic aid as it shows physiological rather than physical or structural changes. Physiological changes always occur before physical changes.
We therefore recommend that our patients use this tool as a standard means of proactively safeguarding their health by regularly measuring inflammation in their bodies.
How does it work?
The organs ability to regulate provides information about the body’s cellular and metabolic function or dysfunction. There are points of the body scanned using AlfaSight software and a probe measuring your skins temperature on 120 specific points located on the face and torso. The body is then exposed to cool air for 10 minutes and the same points are re-measured to see how each organ regulated under the stress of the cool down. The results are documented in a graph revealing the reactions of the body, the functional health of your various organs and their neurological control systems. The graph is sent to our licensed thermography interpreter. Remember early detection is important for timely and effective treatment.
Increased heat means inflammation in an area. Dentally this could be in the maxillary sinus, active gingival infection, abscessed or necrotic teeth, root filled teeth, cavitation infection, retained roots, third molar extraction sites and so on.
Skin as an organ breathes, exchanges gases with the environment, cools us as well as keeps us warm by letting out or keeping it in by controlling the amount of circulation, or blood flow, in the skin. This automatic regulation is done without conscious thought and is controlled by the autonomic nervous system via the sympathetic. The whole process is called thermoregulation.
3 Ways Thermal Imaging Can Help in Dentistry
- Identifying if an existing root canal has chronic inflammation (infection) in the surrounding tissue.
- Identifying if a cavitation (extraction site that has infection in the jaw bone (below the gum tissue) exists
- Identifying if an abscess is beginning to develop
European Thermography is the Natural Choice
Cleared by the FDA as an adjunctive diagnostic testing device with an indication for exploration and possible understanding of the following:
- Abnormalities of the female breasts
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Musco-skeletal disorders
- Extracranial, cerebral, and facial vascular disease
- Various neoplastic & inflammatory conditions
- Abnormalities of the thyroid gland
Reasons Why Thermal Imaging Makes Good Sense
It’s safe. It’s easy. And it offers some wonderful benefits that perfectly complement other diagnostic tools:
- Thermal Imaging is reliable and accurate.
- Thermal Imaging offers precise and objective data
- Thermal Imaging can save you money compared to other techniques
Thermal Imaging is an excellent choice when considering a proactive approach to maintaining your health. It’s non-invasive, which means there’s no pain. None.
Research has shown that root canals are a continual source of energy drain and immunity diminution. There is a body organ associated with EACH tooth in the mouth as well as a meridian network. If that tooth develops any form of infection (or is toxified in any way by metals, such as amalgams), that infection will adversely affect the organ system which is connected to that tooth. Research has also shown that root canals often lead to cancer in the same organ that is connected to that root canal tooth.
How to prepare for Thermography (easy peasy)
24 hours prior to your appointment
STOP all homeopathic remedies and herbal supplements
NO regulative therapies such as: Acupuncture, bioenergetics treatments, electro neural diagnosis and no alcohol
On your special day of your thermography exam, please observe the following:
- Eat a light breakfast 1 hour before
- NO smoking, or caffeinated beverages
- Avoid extremely hot or cold drinks
- Do not shower or bathe (ok to take night before)
- No cosmetics or body lotions
- No exercise or sauna
- Men do not shave: please trim around mouth and jaw areas
***regardless of the temperature outside please wear socks, long loose fitting pants and long sleeved button down shirt. Women please remove bra 30 minutes before Thermogram.
Is this something new?
NO, European health professionals and major hospitals have used thermography for more than 30 years. FDA cleared for health professionals to utilize in 1997 and we are excited to offer this to our patients.
Why am I tired and overweight?
Are my hormones out of balance? Are my breasts healthy? Indications of intestinal disorders such as food intolerance, yeast fermentation, etc or other core subtle imbalances may contribute to a variety of health problems. This health profile prioritizes your weakest organs to assist your health care practitioner in designing a healthy program for your unique system.
Why haven’t I heard of this?
Until now, Thermograms were done in select doctor’s and dentist’s offices.
Do I need a prescription?
No, but the report does have to go to your holistic or health care professional. (state law)
Who should have this test?
Anyone interested in maintaining good health. We have done this test on men, women & children aged 6 to 95.
What kind of doctors use this testing?
We work with MD’s, OB-GYN’s, Integrative Medicine Doctors, DO’s, DC’s, ND’S, acupuncturists, Herbalist, and Dentist.
How long does it take?
The whole test takes approximately 30 minutes. Appointments are here in our office Monday through Saturday, from 8AM-1PM. We Allow 1 hour for appointments.
Will my insurance cover this?
Some insurance companies may reimburse. Thus far Medicare is not covering this procedure. We do give you a receipt with a procedure code that you can turn in to your insurance company.
